The National Restaurant Association has taken a majority interest in Winsight Holdings LLC, a market intelligence company that connects the restaurant, foodservice, convenience retailing and grocery industries through its portfolio of research, events, and industry news. Winsight will continue to operate as an independent entity, and its senior leadership team will remain in place to run Winsight operations.
“Together the National Restaurant Association and Winsight will be better positioned to support the dynamic demands of the restaurant and foodservice industry as it continues to rebuild,” said Tom Bené, president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association. “The Association’s investment in Winsight reinforces its commitment to support and best represent the interests of the entire industry. Winsight’s robust engagement and event platforms along with their industry-leading informational resources contribute enormously to the success of every restaurant.”
“In the face of an historic challenge, our industry has shown resilience, innovation, and teamwork,” said Mike Wood, CEO of Winsight. “Restaurants are in the early days of a comeback that promises significant growth for the next 5 years. Convenience and grocery stores have evolved and redefined what it means to be essential. Thanks to this renewed partnership with the Association, Winsight’s market defining thought leadership will be available to fuel a rebirth.”
